Eyes to See | The Very Rev. Peet Dickinson
In 1 Corinthians 9:16-23, Paul talks about becoming all things to all people. This week, Peet shares how we can share the hope of Christ as ambassadors of the gift of the Gospel. When we make certain groups or types of people into an "other," we make ourselves great and miss the blessings of the Gospel. Instead, Jesus calls us to shed self-interest for the sake of all people.

All Things in Common | The Very Rev. Peet Dickinson
This Sunday, Dean Peet casts a vision for the upcoming year for our Cathedral Church. Acts 2:42-47 teaches that the early church had all things in common.

More Than Enough | The Rev. Canon Patrick Schlabs
This Sunday, Canon Patrick teaches from Matthew 6:19-34 and poses the question, "When will we have enough?" In a culture so centered on hoarding and maintaining wealth, how do we reflect the generosity of our Father and care for one another with our treasures?

January 24, 2021
The Caller and the Called | The Very Rev. Peet Dickinson
This week, Dean Peet unpacks the calling of Samuel and Nathaniel 1 Samuel 3:1-20 and John 1:43-51. How does God's call to us make each of us a steward? God is calling us; may we be His servants who are listening.

January 17, 2021
Behold and Become | The Rev. Canon Patrick Schlabs
On this first Sunday after Epiphany, Canon Patrick teaches from Isaiah 42:1-9 about the effects of the Kingship of Jesus. We become like the thing that we choose to worship. We seek leaders that look like the idols that we behold. Instead of seeking power and leaders who grasp for it, how can we as the Body of Christ seek to become like the suffering servant Christ?
24:41
January 10, 2021
All Shall Be Well | The Very Rev. Peet Dickinson

The Fullness of Time | Mr. Hunter Myers

21:29
December 27, 2020
Love Incarnate | The Very Rev. Peet Dickinson

Keeper of Promises | The Rev. Canon Patrick Schlabs
This Sunday, on the fourth Sunday of Advent, Canon Patrick teaches from 2 Samuel 7:1-17, God's promise to David that He would build for him a house.

21:24
December 20, 2020
Pride & Joy | Mr. Hunter Myers

He Will Tend His Sheep | The Very Rev. Peet Dickinson
This week, we celebrate the second week of Advent. Dean Peet teaches from Isaiah 40:1-11 and encourages us to remember and believe that God is both great and mighty and full of goodness.

Waiting Well | The Rev. Canon Patrick Schlabs

Do we bring Jesus our questions? This week Patrick teaches from Matthew 22: 15-46. Jesus welcomes and answers our questions, and He challenges us to not only view Him as a brilliant teacher but also to call Him Lord. Jesus desires to answer not only our questions but to fulfill our greatest need.
23:24
October 25, 2020
Retelling Our Story | Mr. Hunter Myers
What stories do we return to again and again? What stories stir our souls? This week Hunter Myers encourages us that the Christian life is a return to the Gospel of grace as we retell our stories to one another.
19:14
October 18, 2020
People of Peace | Rev. Canon Patrick Schlabs
This week, Canon Patrick teaches from Philippians 4:1-9. Peace is hard to nail down, unless its source is constant. The great hope we have as believers in Christ is that He has brought an everlasting Kingdom of peace with his death and resurrection. How can we live into this peace in such uncertain times? How can we model relational and circumstantial peace in a year that feels like a continual storm? Canon Patrick invites us to practice peace through knowing the Prince of Peace.
26:30
October 11, 2020
The Treasure of a Better Country | The Very Rev. Peet Dickinson

A Changed Mind | The Very Rev. Peet Dickinson
This week, Dean Peet preaches from Philippians 2:1-13. Peet challenges us that the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand even in our own hearts and minds. Change can always happen in the Kingdom of God, and our Savior has made a way to righteousness that is always available to His children.
18:01
September 27, 2020
The Generous Master | Rev. Canon Schlabs
In Matthew 20:1-16, Jesus tells the parable of the generous master. This week Canon Patrick paints a picture of the generosity of our Father. As laborers for the Kingdom, we can trust our Master to deal with our failings with generosity as we labor together. All of us who were last are made first in the Gospel because of the work of Jesus Christ. How can we respond generously in return?
20:50
September 20, 2020
Fall Kickoff Sunday | The Very Rev. Peet Dickinson
This week, Dean Peet preaches out of Acts and calls us to ask together, "What does it mean for us to be the heart of God for the heart of Charleston?" Just as the muscle of the heart pumps blood to every part of the body, our scattering circulates the Good News of the Gospel. 
20:22
September 13, 2020
What, or Who, is Our Win? | The Very Rev. Peet Dickinson
This week, Dean Peet discusses Matthew 18:15-20. Matthew 18 is often talked about as the prescription for confronting an offense. How do we orient toward this teaching of Jesus in light of once being lost and now being found by the Good Shepherd? How do we orient toward the divisive social and political climate in light of this posture of humility and loving our neighbor?
21:56
September 6, 2020
The Necessary Cross | Canon Patrick Schlabs
Canon Patrick unpacks how the identity of Christ is inseparable from the mission of Christ as seen in the cross. In Matthew 16:21-28, Jesus predicts his own suffering and invites us into his mission. Christ and His cross invites us to turn away from conquest and move toward laying down our lives for others.
21:07
August 30, 2020
Built Upon the Solid Rock | The Very Rev. Peet Dickinson
Dean Peet preaches on Matthew 16:1-20 this week. Jesus goes to great lengths to stand with conviction amongst a people who needed to be encouraged that their hope is built on solid ground.

24:46
July 26, 2020
Undivided: Love Mercy | The Rev. Canon Patrick Schlabs
This week, Canon Patrick preaches from Micah 6:1-8 as part of the Undivided series. God sent the prophet Micah to a people who had become unfaithful in the way they treated the poor and oppressed. In response to their broken worship, God's people offer to adjust their worship, but God continually calls for mercy and not sacrifice. Patrick shows us how worship without mercy is incomplete, and mercy without worship is insufficient.
24:10
July 19, 2020
The Statue and the Savior | The Very Rev. Peet Dickinson
Do we say “go away” or “come near” to those who are burdened? In Matthew 11:25-30, Jesus calls those who are heavy laden to Himself and invites them to take on His burden. Dean Peet discusses how it is not only American to lift burdens off of those who are downtrodden and oppressed, it is also Christlike. Jesus has a yoke of righteousness in His kingdom that is perfectly fit for our shoulders.
22:07
July 5, 2020
No Peace, But a Sword | The Very Rev. Peet Dickinson
This week, Dean Peet preaches on the sword of Christ. The sword of Christ cuts into the status quo to bring the His Kingdom. The way of the cross disrupts our false "peace and quiet" of sinful status quo to bring about His righteousness. How will we step into the new life He has prepared for us?
22:04
June 28, 2020
Grace Came For Me | The Rev. Matthew Rivers
This week Cathedral has a guest teacher, the Reverend Matthew Rivers from St. John's Chapel on Charleston's Eastside. Romans 5:12-19 speaks of the redemption of righteousness offered to us in Christ. We hear the story of God's call to Rev. Rivers and his journey of grace in the Gospel. God is a relational God, and Rev. Rivers challenges us to pursue relationship with one another in grace, just as Christ pursues all those who belong to Him.
25:36
June 21, 2020
Fuel for Mission | The Rev. Canon Patrick Schlabs
Canon Patrick preaches this week out of Matthew 9:35-10:4. This Sunday marks the first Sunday of Ordinary Time in the Anglican calendar. How do the truths of Advent, Lent, Easter, and Pentecost enable us to embody the story of Jesus? Canon Patrick argues that just as a car without fuel is useless, the church without mission is without purpose. How can we cultivate a heart of compassion and conviction as we pursue Christ's mission?
21:04
June 14, 2020
1 Peter: Grace to Stand | The Rev. Rob Sturdy
This week, Cathedral hosts the Rev. Rob Sturdy, the chaplain at the Citadel. Rev. Rob teaches from 1 Peter 5:6-14 and invites us to reflect on how God's grace confirms, strengthens and establishes us to stand for the day at hand. Like we see in the life of the Apostle Peter, past failure, doubt, or discouragement will not keep us from the grace offered to us in Christ Jesus. 
20:05
June 7, 2020
1 Peter: The End of Suffering | The Very Rev. Peet Dickinson

19:32
May 24, 2020
1 Peter: Christ’s Vindication | The Very Rev. Peet Dickinson
Where do you look for vindication? Dean Peet teaches this week out of 1 Peter 3:1-22. Vanquishing those who oppress and do evil is not ultimately the Christian's job to perform. As witnesses of Christ, Christians can zealously fight for what is good, knowing that the final victory over evil, suffering, and death will belong to the Lord.
22:23
May 17, 2020
1 Peter: Since-Then | The Very Rev. Peet Dickinson
1 Peter 2:13-25 speaks of the newness of life given in Christ Jesus and how that changes everything. Since we have died with Christ, how does that transform how we live as we rise with Christ? How does it change how we relate to those in authority? This week Dean Peet encourages us that the causality of the gospel preserves us as we face the fallenness of this world.
19:34
May 10, 2020
1 Peter: Built to Last | Mr. Hunter Myers
What are you doing today? This week, Hunter Myers teaches from 1 Peter 2:1-10. Because we are chosen and precious to God, we are invited to become a people built to last in any circumstance.

Missed Calls: Moses | Mr. Tom Hample
Wherever you are this Sunday, listen & learn from our friend Tom Hample about the call of Moses. Moses carried years of guilt, shame, and failure before receiving a unique call from God.

25:51
March 15, 2020
Missed Calls: Abraham | The Rev. Canon Patrick Schlabs
Who do you trust? For many of us, the list of people & institutions we trust is shrinking rapidly. So, what does it mean to trust who God calls you to be & where He calls you?

21:34

29:26
March 8, 2020
Missed Calls: Adam & Eve | The Very Rev. Peet Dickinson
In the beginning, God called everything into existence. Then God called Adam & Eve to partake in creation and cultivation. But, soon Adam & Eve listened to a different call: the call of selfish consumption, what the Bible calls sin. In this first 'Missed Calls' sermon series, Dean Peet Dickinson preaches from Genesis 2:4-9, 15-25 on the missed call of Adam & Eve.

Lent Begins in Ashes | The Rt. Rev. Terrell Glenn
What does the ashen cross painted on your forehead mean? Is it a sign of your own piety, or is it an act of public repentance & contrition? This Ash Wednesday, our friend Bishop Terrell Glenn from St. Andrew's City Church shares the heart behind Ash Wednesday from Matthew 6:1-6, 16-21.

February 24, 2020
Called to Listen | Hunter Myers
We all long for mountain-top experiences, to see life and beauty at it's height. But one time, three disciples witnessed Jesus luminously transfigured on a mountain, and these disciples still fell into sin. Our sin runs deep enough that even the deepest perception of Beauty isn't enough to transform us. So, what hope is there for followers of Christ through every mountain & every valley? This Sunday, Hunter Myers preaches from Matthew 17:1-9 on the Transfiguration of Jesus and the good news for all: our King is merciful, and we are called to listen to him more than we fear our sin.
20:00
February 23, 2020
Anxiety in the Age of Technology | Rachel Hajek & Hunter Myers
How can Christians use technology as a tool to be formed in the beauty of the Gospel rather than being deformed in fear & anxiety? Join this special Christian Formation session as we discuss the formative (and deformative) power of technology. [As a disclaimer, neither Rachel Hajek nor Hunter Myers are trained counselors/psychologists. This conversation will not discuss Generalized Anxiety Disorder, but rather the broader sense of the word 'anxiety' as unhealthy fears. For those dealing with diagnosed Anxiety, we recommend trained & licensed counselors and pastoral care from clergy.]

February 23, 2020
Around the Fire | The Very Rev. Peet Dickinson
A campfire changes things, as if it transforms weary travelers with the words, "Everything is better now."  Many gathered around Jesus expecting Him to tell them to do better or not to worry so much. Instead, Jesus invites them into a third way, gathered around Him in His life, His death, His resurrection, and His Kingdom. This Baptism Sunday, Dean Peet Dickinson preaches on Matthew 5:21-37 on some hard teachings of Jesus that ultimately invite us to gather around Him. 
22:38
February 16, 2020
Called to Create Part IV: Q&A Panel
Now that we have learned about how God uses creativity in the world, how are creative people from our church using art to point to the goodness of God? In this week's Formation class, we hear from Anna Brock - pianist, Beth Webb Hart - writer, Edward Hart - composer, and David Stanfield - animator. Listen to how these artists use their creative mediums to show the world God's goodness.

Distinct Within | The Rev. Canon Patrick Schlabs
Most of the time, we don't like tensions. We avoid certain relationships to avoid awkward tensions, and if we're not careful, we can ignore important realities to remain at ease. For the follower of Jesus, the consistent tension is to remain distinct within the world. Jesus put it to like as salt & light without abandoning the foundation of Scripture. This week, the Rev. Canon Patrick Schlabs preaches from Matthew 5:13-20 on the call to be a distinct people within the world, avoiding the errors that fall on either side of this tension. 
28:09
February 9, 2020
The Lord's Charge | The Very Rev. Peet Dickinson

This Sunday, Dean Peet Dickinson preaches from Micah 6:1-8. Listen & learn what the call for worship, discipleship, and mission looks like for our community. 
22:47
February 2, 2020
Repenting, Following, and Fishing | The Very Rev. Peet Dickinson
It takes courage to be persistent. When Jesus called to a couple persistent fishers, they couldn't imagine where their call to be "fishers of men" would take them. This week, Dean Peet Dickinson preaches from Matthew 4:12-22 about the calling of the first disciples and, ultimately, the calling of all who follow Jesus to be Gospel-driven, creative, committed, loving fishers of people. 
26:10
January 26, 2020
Called to Create Part I: The Foundations of Creativity | Stephen Roach

47:45
January 26, 2020
Called to be Saints | The Rev. Patrick Schlabs
Who are we, really? It seems like a chasm exists between our ideal selves and who we really are, between perception and reality. This isn't a new problem either! When our friend St. Paul addressed a church in Corinth overrun with issues, he still called them "saints," those set apart for a holy purpose.  What can followers of Jesus make of our dual situation as broken, sinful people and our calling to be saints? This Baptism Sunday, Rev. Patrick Schlabs shares the good news from 1 Corinthians 1:1-9: your calling is rooted in God's faithfulness and not your effort to be better.
26:45
January 19, 2020
Called, Equipped, Beloved | The Very Rev. Peet Dickinson
How would you treat your time, talent, and treasure if you knew that you were called, equipped, and loved by God? As Dean Peet teaches from Matthew 3:13-17 on the baptism of Jesus, we discover how "all-in" God works through those He calls, equips, and loves.

24:58
January 12, 2020
Delight | The Very Rev. Peet Dickinson
Your 2020 new year resolutions may be anything from a lengthy checklist down to a single word, a theme to carry and pursue throughout the year. This first Sunday of the new year, Dean Peet Dickinson exhorts us to make delight the theme of 2020. The good news is delight isn't something you can manufacture! Delight begins with good gifts and ascends to the God who gives them, and what's more, the reality that in Christ God delights in us. Listen & learn from this sermon from Psalm 84.

An Incarnation Interpretation | Hunter Myers
What is your response to Christmas? Whether you left the Christmas season tired or rested, empty or filled, connected or lonely, the coming of Jesus is good news for you to respond to. Even one of the most theologically rich passages of the Bible, John 1:1-18, invites us to view everything, God, history, and our own humanity in light of the incarnate Jesus. This Sunday, Hunter Myers teaches from the prologue of the Gospel of John. What we receive in Christ Jesus isn't just new information, but life-giving transformation through the mystery of His life, death, and resurrection.

The Destination and the Way | Rev. Patrick Schlabs
Answering the questions, "Where are we going?" and, "How will we get there?" will invariably affect your present focus. Rather than being a people who have 'arrived', Christians are a people in transit, on a journey. In today's sermon, Rev. Patrick Schlabs unpacks the hope presented to a nation of exiles in Isaiah 35. Discover the enduring Advent hope for all in Christ: the destination and the way have been secured by Jesus.

24:03
December 1, 2019
2019 Prayer Book Part I: The Daily Office | Hunter Myers
What is your rhythm of daily discipleship? For centuries, the Anglican tradition has offered an incredible rhythm called the Daily Office. The Daily Office follows a lectionary & liturgy, immersing us in the reading of Scripture & prayers. But for most of us, the Book of Common Prayer is a daunting resource to navigate!
