Sam WhiteCandler Admissions' Enthused! blog features voices of Candler students who are living out their call while working toward their degree. The word enthused means "filled with inspiration" and comes from the Greek “en-Theos,” or "God within." 

Sam White, a second-year MDiv student at Candler and a member of the Student Ambassador team for 2013-14 is a preacher and worship leader who hopes to purse a PhD in sociology of social movements and race and ethnicity. His post "America's Great Default," explores the relevance of race issues in theological education and formation.

"It wasn’t until my first year of theological education at Candler that I experienced, with great continuity, a small portion of beloved community; or the ability to reside in a metaphorical house whose substructure is love," he writes.

"While we are not perfect, the communities we have forged here at Candler give us hope. Perpetual fear is dispossessed by meaningful discourse and the dispensation of intentional love."
