A highlight from 053 - The Quiet Soul: Pastor Melvyn Warfield, Jr.
Mother told me one time. That may be major your height because your height will command respect when your voice can uncle. Melvin i sat down and had a conversation back in september. Twenty nineteen right before. I boarded a plane to spain for the next few months. I was twenty three years old feeling super clueless and thought i talked to the only big brother i ever really had tucson junior kademi only temper so eighth grade graduation temperatures always kinda gave us a sendoff kind of because it was our last year too. I remember After all the eighth graders after they do the grade graduation they call the tenth grade class up. They go through the line and they ask what you're gonna do when you leave. What are you gonna do when you grow up. What's your plan. And and. Of course i'm warfield. So i'm at the end of the line. And they came to me and they were like what are you going to do. And i was just like. I don't know he told me about the time. He was struggling with his own calling. He was the quiet soul the introverted pastor in a world where he realized he could only be fulfilled and doing what he knew he was chosen to do. If you joining us for the first time. Welcome to phil's philosophies a show about life and self-discovery. I'm your host philip. Warfield and this just might be the last episode of season one. Well it's an attorney. I'm so happy you're still here. This final conversations. A little bit more personal. I hope you learn with me.
