I am writing an article on an ADHD Liberation theology. I submitted a draft to the Journal of Religion, Health and Disability and got it back with a ton of helpful notes and an asighned co-author. Part of my goal is to ask: What does an ADHD God look like?
Disability theology imagines God in a 'puff' wheelchair, Queer theology imagines God as queer (I met my wife at a conference on queer theology, so i am a fan!). Black theology imagines God as black. So....ADHD....
"What does an ADHD God look like to me? For me that God is Playful-Passionate-Prophetic, is hyperfocused and empathetic, multi-channeled, hungry to learn along with us, Future Haunted but interdependent in making that future happen. An ADHD God has no attention for injustice or disscrimination but takes Joy and Pleasure in relationships, the wonder and awe of creation and in the beauty of discovery. An ADHD God is an Upper Room God - turning chaos into revelation, disrupting our assumptions and plans and revealing Godself in the unexpected."
I would love to hear responses from Queer Theology and would welcome being pointed towards books on the topic. I feel Queer Theology, more so than disability theology, has allot to teach ADHDers.
