During a broadcast November 2, 2014, Elder Paul V. Johnson, Commissioner of Education for the Church and a member of the Seventy, announced that CES devotionals in 2015 will be called worldwide devotionals for young adults and there will be just three devotionals—one each in January, May, and September. [See related story.

Elder Lynn G. Robbins of the Presidency of the Seventy will speak in May, and Elder L. Whitney Clayton of the Presidency of the Seventy will speak in September.

Elder Lynn G. Robbins and Elder L. Whitney Clayton, both of the Presidency of the Seventy, will also speak in 2015.

“These changes are intended to highlight the importance of each broadcast and to ensure each young adult, wherever you are and whatever your circumstance, is invited to participate,” Elder Johnson said. “We hope you will make every effort to attend each devotional and encourage others to attend with you so that you and they might have a chance to associate together, listen to counsel from our leaders, and receive personal revelation and direction.”
