Pastor Johnnie Colemon, Founder of The New Thought Megachurch Christ Universal Temple, Dies!

The Rev. Johnnie Colemon, influential founder and minister of Christ Universal Temple and a proponent of positive mental attitude, died Tuesday evening. The former Chicago schoolteacher started the New Thought megachurch in 1956 and did not retire for half a century, presiding over its growth from a third floor at 6156 S. Cottage Grove to a multi-acre complex at 119th and Ashland, which includes two institutions of learning and a large banquet and meeting facility. She also founded the Universal Foundation for Better Living, an association of New Thought churches.
