Who is #1 on your list?

If you pray, please make President Trump #1 on your prayer list. Pray that he be open to the God he talked about during the campaign and from time to time now and that he meet with Pope Francis or another Jesuit who is trained in discernment, and that all of us, not just Catholics, not just Christians make discernment of what we can do as neighbors and citizens our priority during this Lenten season starting right now. We can all do better!

New? Yes, New IDEA Cafe Startup Workshop.

We will be changing the format of our LoDo Denver IDEA Cafe Startup Workshop each Friday in February until we get it right! :-)  Also, we've changed the meeting time from 4:30 to 2 p.m.

Why the change? We are creating a meeting that turns every weekend into a startup weekend. Or possibly every month into a startup month. Or every year into a startup year. One of the things that we will try to decide during our Friday LoDo Denver IDEA Cafe Startup Workshops in February and conversation with members and others between meetings.

Join us this afternoon, Friday, February 10, or next Friday to help us make the changes in the IDEA Cafe format, and to brainstorm any problem or opportunity concerning your startup in a new career, new project or campaign, or new business.

RSVP and we will save a seat for you. But of course as always walk-ins are always welcome. For more info and to rsvp for this week or next see

Watch for the new meetings we will be starting around metro-Denver and Colorado and possibly beyond with our new format. If you have any suggestions for it but can't make a meeting please call John Wren at (303)861-1447
