The Welcome committee is available to help newcomers navigate the wealth of knowledge within Troubled Times, to clarify the premise, and to answer newcomer questions. The premise of Troubled Times is that cataclysmic changes are going to happen in our world soon. This premise is based not only on increasingly evident earth changes, but also on ancient and more recent prophecy. Newcomers are encouraged to Join this group if they have any questions at all to pose, or comments they have been hesitant to make on the other lists. The Welcome committee is there to help you with these issues! After joining, address your questions and comments to the ongoing Welcome discussion at firstname.lastname@example.org.
