[leighton]Once again the time has come to announce our next set of guest speakers. On Friday March 24th we are pleased to have Peter Rollins join our discussions for the first time and welcome back Adele Sakler. With both Peter’s and Charley’s background in philosophy it promises to be quite stimulating to those interested in such subjects.Adele and I, as I’m sure many of our listeners will succumb, will be taking this as an opportunity to catch up on our sleep.

We look forward to having both of them on. It’s going to be an interesting ride.

Peter Rollins is the co-ordinator of the experimental collective Ikon. Ikon describes itself as iconic, apocalyptic, heretical, emerging and failing and engages in what it calls theodrama and ‘transformance art’. In the United States, Peter Rollins is considered to be one of the key leaders of the emerging church movement.

Rollins is also a freelance philosophy lecturer and writer who specialises in various aspects of continental philosophy, phenomenology and emerging church theology. He is currently a research associate with Trinity College Dublin.

He was educated at Queen’s University, Belfast (graduating with a BA Hons in Scholastic Philosophy, an MA in Political Theory and Social Criticism and a PhD dealing with Post-Structural theory).

Adele Sakler currently resides in Richmond, Virginia with her wife, Katryna, and their two dogs, Mushu and Lady. She blogs as Existential Punk at www.ExistentialPunk.com and is the creator and site administrator of Queermergent at http://Queermergent.wordpress.com. She is currently going through long-term treatment for Chronic Lyme Disease, other tick-borne diseases, and heavy metal toxicity.

Adele has been a Christ-follower for 20 years and an “out” queer woman for two and-a-half years. Her involvement with the emerging church and Emergent Village (http://www.emergentvillage.com/) has filled the better part of 10 years.
