The meditation on the first Sunday of the month is great for long-time Coltrane lovers and new listeners. A guided meditation on the testimony and music of St. John Coltrane’s A Love Supreme calms minds and helps attendees tune into the spirit. Join St. John Coltrane Church and experience the power of this anointed sound … the music and wisdom of Saint John Coltrane.
