John Coltrane

The only church I may join

John Coltrane's Music has changed the life of many, I have never had a single doubt about that. 

But, I did not know there is also Church after him: The Church of Saint Coltrane, later renamed in St. John William Coltrane African Orthodox Church - in San Francisco. 
The inner first notes of masterpiece A Love Supreme made indeed the difference here, in the life of Franzo King, whom funded this church, and then in his beloved family, and San Francisco's related community: 


And not less the ending lines: 'Elation. Elegance. Exaltation. All from God. Thank you God. Amen'. 

This is a short documentary film produced by Alan Klingenstein and directed by Jeff Swimmer, filmed in 1996. Truly interesting, and inspiring. 

In case you were still looking for God or godness, please, don't forget to search for him/it in this record soon or later. Maybe again. The catholic church got it wrong again its marketing choices, missing this.
