Craig briefs: ‘Emergent church’ to be discussed

Dr. Jim Steel, of the Center for Biblical Ministries, will speak at the Yampa Valley Baptist Church on the topics of “dispensationalism” and the “emergent church.”

The discussions will trace a brief history of pagan, modern, post-modern and emergent thought to recognize the intrusion of emergent thinking into fundamental Baptist and Bible church circles.

The meetings will be held at 10 a.m. and 7 p.m. today and at 9:45 a.m., 11 a.m. and 6 p.m. Sunday. Yampa Valley Baptist Church is located at 3900 E. Victory Way.

Confirmed H1N1 flu case in Routt County

Northwest Colorado Visiting Nurse Association received a report of the first confirmed case of H1N1 Flu in Routt County. The case was mild, and the person is fully recovered.

At this time across the United States, the H1N1 flu continues to behave very similarly to seasonal flu. It is a relatively mild disease with a spectrum of illness. At this time, there have been 101 confirmed cases of H1N1 reported in Colorado in the following counties: Adams, Arapahoe, Archuleta, Boulder, Denver, Douglas, Eagle, El Paso, Fremont, Garfield, Jefferson, La Plata, Larimer, Mesa, Morgan, Pitkin and Weld.

People who become ill with influenza-like symptoms, including a fever of more than 100 F, body aches, cough, runny nose, sore throat, nausea, vomiting or diarrhea should stay home and avoid contact with other people to keep from spreading the illness. People with mild influenza symptoms do not need to be tested. If symptoms become severe, people should seek medical care from their primary care physician.

Northwest Colorado VNA continues to advise individuals that exercising precaution is the best defense against influenza. Avoid close contact with ill people, cover your mouth and nose when coughing or sneezing with a tissue or sleeve. Wash your hands frequently, avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth, and practice other good health habits.
