Southern Cemetery

After class today, my DMin cohort comrades took off to the Cave Hill Cemetery here in Louisville to visit the grave sites of a number of Southern Seminary figures. Here's a few pics of those we vistited today at Southern's cemetery. After the cemetery stroll, one of my cohorts (Michael aka, Gus) went through Heritage Hall and viewed the massive portraits of all nine of Southern's presidents. James P. Boyce - first President of Southern Seminary.

John A. Broadus - member of the first faculty at Southern and the second President of the school.

A.T. Robertson - Professor of New Testament, buried in the shadow of Broadus' grave.

Basil Manly - Professor of Old Testament in the early days of the school.

John R. Sampy - fifth President of Southern.

Duke McCall - seventh President of Southern and a chief proponent who carried the school in a very moderate to liberal direction. McCall is still alive, but his grave will one day be next to the other Southern Seminary leaders.

Here's my beloved brothers in the DMin program, who I have grown to love and value their friendship, integrity, parternership in ministry and kindred spirit.
