Do you feel that you matter? That you and your contributions are indispensable? Do you wake up in the morning feeling like you have an important role to play in the grand scheme of things?
We live in a large, depersonalized world where we increasingly feel that our individual contributions don’t matter and are hardly recognized, where there is no real sense that life – ours or anyone’s – is truly significant or meaningful.
Coming from Rosh Hashana, when we celebrated our collective birthday, and standing on Shabbat Shuvah, when we return (teshuvah) to our true and innate selves – now is a perfect time to revisit our raison de etre: Who exactly is that true self, and how do we actualize it?
Today God asks us: Ayekoh? “Where are you? What are you doing? Are you living up to your potential? Are you making your unique mark on the universe?”

Filled with inspirational stories, anecdotes and humor, this sermon addresses the most powerful question of all: Are you dispensable?
