The life of a Christian *CANNOT* progress if our life is about putting on a holy show for God. Moving and performing out of our strength, trying to be righteous.

We don't have it in us. We do not, in any way, have the capability to even comprehend the depth of our problem.

What we do have, however, have the ability to face the very light of life. He has claimed us, and facing him, responding to his call to "follow me" will take care of the rest. He'll show us, bit by bit, what to leave behind and what to pick up. He's a good teacher... a good Father... an amazing King.

We have to let go.


you don’t have to get it right to be mine
you don’t have to perform for me
you don’t have to get it right to be mine
set your eyes on me and you will see

Your perfection is nothing like mine
I am resurrection
your perfection is nothing like mine
I renew perception

Rise and face the dawn

Rise and face the dawn
be a harmony in the eternal song
rise and face the dawn
all creation will sing along

The Longing Selmer, Tennessee

The Longing is music by John and Yvonne Cullimore.

We seek to bring music that will connect with you both in sound and poetry, melding loops and beats with hammered dulcimer, 12-string guitar and layers of vocals and harmonies.

More importantly is that we enjoy our music, and can use them for worship and prayer. We certainly do hope and pray that you can do the same.
