    On a 1966 tour of Japan, Coltrane was asked what he wanted to be in 10 years. “I would like to be a saint,” he said.

    The spirit of St. John Coltrane lives on in San Francisco’s famous Church of John Coltrane. Aeon magazine describes the vibe of this one-of-a-kind congregation is “a rapturous out-of-your-head-ness," mixing African Orthodox liturgy with Coltrane’s quotes and music. The church encourages worshippers to sing along, dance, and clap to the music.

    “There is a real desire among aficionados of John Coltrane, not only for his music, but for his philosophy and spirituality as a believer and a saint,” says Pastor Wanika Stephens, “Everyone is welcome here. The main ingredient is love.” Amen!
