Rev. Gorsuch writes to explain why the new church being built by Finley Chapel in Dayton will be renamed Raper Chapel. As the current pastor, he is not happy that the Trustees and members have voted to change the name, but he has little recourse. The members were deeply affected by the death of former pastor Rev. Raper. Gorsuch knows that this matter has caused Finley a great deal of pain, and hopes that the two of them can remain friends. Abstract Number - 481
