Kulturforandring: Inspiration fra Martin Luther King


Vi taler ofte om kulturforandringer. Vi taler om at det er fint og godt at kulturen ændres på en fredelig og stille måde.

De større kultur forandringer er en større udfordring.

Jeg har hentet Martin Luther Kings 10 bud fra en amerikansk hjemmeside, men de findes iøvrigt også i flere bøger om ham og den amerikanske borgerrets bevægelse fra 1960'erne. Her finder du også en fortolkning af de 10 bud.


In April 1963, civil rights leader Martin Luther King, Jr. spelled out a radical strategy to change the culture of his time in his book, Why We Can’t Wait. Each participant in the Birmingham protests was required to abide by Dr. King’s “Ten Commandments.”

1. Meditate daily on the teachings and life of Jesus.

2. Remember always that the nonviolent movement in Birmingham seeks justice and reconciliation—not victory.

3. Walk and talk in the manner of love, for God is love.

4. Pray daily to be used by God in order that all men might be free.

5. Sacrifice personal wishes in order that all men might be free.

6. Observe with both friend and foe the ordinary rules of courtesy.

7. Seek to perform regular service for others and for the world.

8. Refrain from the violence of fist, tongue, or heart.

9. Strive to be in good spiritual and bodily health.

10. Follow the directions of the movement and of the captain on a demonstration.
