LOUISVILLE, Ky. (BP) -- Graduates of The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary "see the word of the Lord speed ahead of them," said seminary president R. Albert Mohler Jr., at the school's 225th commencement exercise May 15. Due to restrictions on large gatherings because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the commencement was live-streamed, with no graduates physically in attendance at the Louisville, Ky., campus. The service has been live-streamed in the past, but the 225th commencement marks the first commencement at Southern Seminary where students watched exclusively online.
