The Mutual theme for 2016 is:
“Wherefore, ye must press forward with a steadfastness in Christ, having a perfect brightness of hope, and a love of God and of all men. Wherefore, if ye shall press forward, feasting upon the word of Christ, and endure to the end, behold, thus saith the Father: Ye shall have eternal life” (2 Nephi 31:20; emphasis added).
The theme may be used to enrich Mutual opening exercises, as a topic for sacrament meeting talks by youth, or to provide focus for youth activities, including camps, youth conferences, and devotionals. Leaders are encouraged to emphasize any of the principles taught in this verse to help meet the needs of the youth they serve.
Resources for introducing the theme, including videos and music, are now online on youth.ChurchofJesusChrist.org. Additional materials supporting the theme will be made available in Church magazines and on ChurchofJesusChrist.org throughout 2016. (Learn more what general leaders said about the theme.)
