You know that feeling when you really need a hair cut? Now imagine you’re a refugee, looking after your husband and your daughter, with no time or money to worry about anything other than survival. But you really need a hair cut. Now imagine you’re a young hairdresser. Someone approaches you and asks if you would consider coming to visit the refugee and cutting her hair. What would you say? In this real-life example, what you’d say is: “That’s incredible. I was just talking with my boyfriend about how I’d like to contribute to the community. But what can I do? All I know how to do is cut hair.” We all have gifts to share. What’s yours?
