A notice dated August 21, 2012, announced the 2013 Mutual theme: “Stand ye in holy places, and be not moved, until the day of the Lord come; for behold, it cometh quickly, saith the Lord” (Doctrine and Covenants 87:8; emphasis added).
Leaders are encouraged to use the theme to enrich Mutual opening exercises, as a topic for sacrament meeting talks by youth, and to provide focus for youth activities such as camp, youth conference, and devotionals. It may also be used to focus youth on temple worthiness, temple attendance, and family history.
The annual DVD, Strength of Youth Media 2013: Stand Ye in Holy Places, will be available online at the end of the year. These brief video segments may be used to supplement quorum meetings, classes, youth conference, and other youth activities throughout the year.
Additional resource material in support of the theme will be available in the New Era and Liahonamagazines and on ChurchofJesusChrist.org at the beginning of 2013.
