Big money.

Two words which are not in the future of this blog’s author. Unless it involves other words such as “owe,” “in need of,” or “charitable donation to.”

Jonathan Bush is trapped somewhere between the lands of Sophomore and Junior in the world of College. Having been around the block as a student, his major is now and forever Graduation. He suspects this will work itself out as a concentration in religious studies. Which is just as well, since he desires to live a life dedicated to student ministry when he graduates. (As stated above: Jonathan’s Future=Big Money)

If Jonathan had much spare time, he would do a number of different things. Like playing video games. Or perhaps macramé. But, as it is, between being a student, a Sunday School teacher, a leader in the chapter of Orthodox Christian Fellowships at the University of Tennessee (where he attends), and being the OCF Southern Regional Representative, he has little spare time. And he’s watching it grow smaller every day. It’s like the incredible shrinking woman. But…only with spare time…

He’s looking eye-to-eye into a present with a lot of promise and hope. Does he make plans about the future? Of course. But he knows all too well that those plans can change as quickly and as shockingly as a MySpace page layout. “The only time we ever have is the eternal ‘now,'” he says, quoting his friend Kevin. “In my dreams, I see visions of the future. But, today we have today,” he also says, quoting his friend Jon.

This blog follows Jonathan’s adventures and misadventures, his joys and sorrows, his deep thoughts and lapses of reason. Randomness abounds in his crazy life, and he is known for drowning in it.

(And occasionally sermonizing about it. 😉 )

Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us.

Hebrews 12:1
