Any thoughts, ideas, suggestions: Is there a way to escalate issues after congregation elders?
Of course, we are taught that God "hears" all prayers - complaints and grievances. However, I may not get a human reply always, a divine response, or I may not get any clear closure at all. I would not know if and when there is an answer.
It seems that once dominant elders neutralize sympathetic elders, the case lingers. In my case it lead to prolonged bitterness and grudge. Unfortunately my case is not serious enough to be a judicial case that would obligate the elders. Otherwise, they don't really care if you get sick just don't disturb their paradise. Some elders accused me of manipulating the situation and short of saying that it's my fault. Therefore I must suffer the consequences.
