Rev. Phil Landers gave the opening invocation at the beginning of the annual meeting and luncheon for the Agency on Aging Northeastern Illinois and related groups. There were 100 people who work with senior issues at a ballroom at Arrowhead Golf Club in Wheaton. The theme was the words we use to talk about aging matters. They do. Interesting conversation over lunch.
Most of the hosting agency attended a wedding Rev. Phil officiated at in the spring for one of the employees. Currently, all 11 of the employees are women. The bride was there, a few days after returning from her honeymoon!
Both of Rev. Phil’s parents were in assisted living and then memory care for the last few years of their lives. So, he has a greater appreciation and awareness of those working with seniors.
