Welcome to the Forum. We are glad that you have joined our Christian family here.
As you post and reply more and more, you will see new forum features open up for you. Those milestones are pre-set by the forum software and the more you fellowship with members, the more you will be able to read and have access to.
For some odd reason, the second link is not working for me. But if you go to the new members forum, there'll be a link there that say "Survival Tips for New Member on the Christian Forum Site" Please check that out!
