Gluten-Free Craze a 'Double-Edged Sword' for Celiac Patients Healthywomen.org
People with celiac disease say they're happy to have more food choices at stores and restaurants. But some with celiac sense a growing stigma as other people voluntarily go gluten-free. And many patients fear people see them as "high-maintenance" and misunderstand the severity of their disease. "On the one hand, you have a lot more options available that taste better and are becoming more affordable for patients. But at the same time, you have this gluten-free craze that's recognized as kind of a fad diet, so celiac disease goes misunderstood in social situations, leaving patients more anxious," said study author James King. Celiac is an inherited autoimmune disorder affecting about 1 percent of people in North America. When those who have it consume gluten -- a protein found in wheat, rye and barley -- their immune system reacts by attacking the small intestine. And, according to the Celiac Disease Foundation, the disorder has been tied to other serious health problems, including cancer and type 1 diabetes. Avoiding gluten is the only current treatment. Meanwhile, a gluten-free diet has become a trendy choice for many without celiac disease, either to shed pounds or for other purported health benefits. Some embrace it due to a sensitivity to gluten that creates unpleasant, but not damaging, gastrointestinal symptoms. "Just having a prescription of a gluten-free diet for people with celiac disease … doesn't acknowledge some of the challenges patients face after treatment," King said. His team found, for example, that participants were fearful of inadvertently consuming gluten when they eat out. That's because restaurants may say they are "glutenfree friendly," but not do enough to avoid crosscontaminating foods. After all, King said, many of their customers simply prefer gluten-free, but they don't require it. A drug treatment for celiac disease must be developed to impress its seriousness upon the public. Better training for restaurant workers also might help, but not as much as a medication. "The real drawback is because there's not yet a medication -- and in America, we equate medications with serious conditions -- people are not going to take it seriously," she said.

News from the Church Library The Heavens Proclaim His Glory: A Spectacular View of Creation Through the Lens of the NASA Hubble Telescope by Thomas Nelson (Author) “I can see how it might be possible for a man to look down upon the earth and be an atheist, but I cannot conceive how he could look up into the heavens and say there is no God.” Abraham Lincoln Our world displays the handiwork of God all around us―in the land and sea, the animals and the plants. But in respect to the sky, the heavens, the universe…there’s a realm of beauty and creation man has not been able to witness, until now. The Heavens Proclaim His Glory is a compilation of stunning photography taken by NASA’s Hubble® Telescope capturing striking images of stars, galaxies, cosmic events, planets, and more. Vivid up-close photographs are paired with a romantic Psalm or quote, as well as a short description of the image. The Heavens will open up a whole new world of worship and praise for our God. Contributors include: Francis Chan, Mike Huckabee, John MacArthur, Stephen Mansfield, Sarah Young, Max Lucado, Jenna Lucado, Henry & Richard Blackaby, Robert Morgan, Kirk Cameron, Homer Hickam, and more.
Leaving Church by Barbara Brown Taylor “This beautiful book is rich with wit and humanness and honesty and loving detail….I cannot overstate how liberating and transforming I have found Leaving Church to be.” — Frederick Buechner, author of Beyond Words “This is an astonishing book. . . . Taylor is a better writer than LaMott and a better theologian than Norris. In a word, she is the best there is.” —Living Church Barbara Brown Taylor, once hailed as one of America’s most effective and beloved preachers, eloquently tells the moving and delightful story of her search to find an authentic way of being Christian—even when it meant giving up her pulpit.
Dreamland by Sam Quinones In 1929, in the blue-collar city of Portsmouth, Ohio, a company built a swimming pool the size of a football field; named Dreamland, it became the vital center of the community. Now, addiction has devastated Portsmouth, as it has hundreds of small rural towns and suburbs across America--addiction like no other the country has ever faced. How that happened is the riveting story of Dreamland. With a great reporter's narrative skill and the storytelling ability of a novelist, acclaimed journalist Sam Quinones weaves together two classic tales of capitalism run amok whose unintentional collision has been catastrophic. The unfettered prescribing of pain medications during the 1990s reached its peak in Purdue Pharma's campaign to market OxyContin, its new, expensive--extremely addictive--miracle painkiller. Meanwhile, a massive influx of black tar heroin--cheap, potent, and originating from one small county on Mexico's west coast, independent of any drug cartel--assaulted small town and mid-sized cities across the country, driven by a brilliant, almost unbeatable marketing and distribution system. Together these phenomena continue to lay waste to communities from Tennessee to Oregon, Indiana to New Mexico. Introducing a memorable cast of characters--pharma pioneers, young Mexican entrepreneurs, narcotics investigators, survivors, and parents--Quinones shows how these tales fit together. Dreamland is a revelatory account of the corrosive threat facing America and its heartland.
Don’t forget your Nametag for Sunday Worship! Sometimes we get in a hurry and some of us run a little late on Sunday mornings, but take a few seconds to pick up your nametag. It’s a great way to break the ice with new members, familiar faces and of course, our visitors. If you don’t have a nametag, Julie will be glad to order one for you.

That’s what Stephen Ministry is. Everything a person tells his or her Stephen Minister is kept in strict confidence. People are often afraid that if they tell someone what is troubling them, word will get around and others will look down on them. But a Stephen Minister keeps everything a care receiver shares confidential, and through the sharing between the care receiver and the care giver, God works miracles of healing and peace. That’s what Stephen Ministers do. They have gone through 50 hours of training in providing Christian care so that they can focus on your needs and listen to what you really have to say. If you know of someone who is interested in talking with a Stephen Minister, please contact one of the Stephen Leaders: Dave Petke, Sharon Petke, Diana Eldredge, or Barbara Lane.
