The Church has announced that the Mutual Theme for 2020 is 1 Nephi 3:7, which emphasizes acting on revelation, and, according to general Church leaders, is an important aspect of the upcoming Children and Youth effort.
In a letter from the Young Women and Young Men General Presidencies sent to local leaders August 1, the words “go and do” are emphasized in the scripture: “And it came to pass that I, Nephi, said unto my father: I will go and do the things which the Lord hath commanded, for I know that the Lord giveth no commandments unto the children of men, save he shall prepare a way for them that they may accomplish the thing which he commandeth them” (emphasis added).
“This scripture emphasizes acting on revelation, which is an important aspect of the upcoming Children and Youth effort and other home-centered, Church-supported efforts,” the letter from general youth leaders states.
The letter encourages leaders and parents to teach principles from the theme scripture at home and at church throughout the year. The theme can also be used as a topic for youth-given sacrament meeting talks and provide a focus for youth activities, camps, youth conferences, and devotionals. The theme is also emphasized during For the Strengh of Youth (FSY) conferences worldwide.
