In case anyone is looking for the posts and comments recently put on this site by Keith Saylor, I have removed them and have deleted Keith's membership. His postings were not in accordance with the purpose of our website. He has agreed with me that he did not fit with the NFF. So, we part ways.
I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause anyone looking for Keith's posts or for comments made in response to his posts.

We are hoping to establish more opportunity to get people who are relatively new to the New Foundation Fellowship more involved with us. To this end we are trialing a Facebook Page that gives us forum-based facility.

You can jump straight in by going to Newcomer's discussion board. Hope to see you there!
