Nearly 200 worshipers sit in circles of plastic chairs around a simple altar table. Together they follow traditional Christian rites. They sit. They stand. They sing.<p>The congregation here resembles the crowd at a downtown bookshop — hipsters and college professors, gay couples and Democratic grandmas.

Wildfire Ashes, Still Scarred Aurora, Colo., Tries To Capitalize On Its Ethnic Riches http://wrkf.org/post/aurora-colo-tries-capitalize-its-ethnic-riches Aurora, Colo., became a familiar name this summer, in the wake of a mass shooting at a local movie theater.<p>But there's much more to this Denver suburb than the recent tragedy. Just ask Ethiopian immigrant Fekade Balcha. Balcha's apartment, on Aurora's north side, sits in a dense neighborhood of squat brick apartment buildings and tiny homes.<p>"You see, in our apartment, there are Russians, Mexicans, Africans," Balcha says. "From Ethiopia, Somalia, Nigeria, and something like that."<p>Aurora is a real mixing bowl of a city, with more than 90 languages spoken in the public schools.
