The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints released a music video representing its 2018 Mutual theme on Thursday.
In the music video, the lyrics repeat, “There is peace in Christ.” The 2018 Mutual theme is based off of Doctrine and Covenants 19:23: “Learn of me, and listen to my words; walk in the meekness of my Spirit, and you shall have peace in me.”
Mutual is the church’s organization for teenagers ages 12 to 18.
In a letter to local leaders, the Young Women and Young Men General Presidencies explained the theme:
“The purpose of the yearly theme is to provide opportunities for youth worldwide to learn about, study, internalize, and apply the principles taught in the scripture. Youth are encouraged to memorize the scripture, study its doctrine, and act on the principles learned throughout the year.
“In addition, the theme can be used to enrich Mutual opening exercises, as a topic for sacrament meeting talks given by youth, and to provide focus for youth activities—including camps, youth conferences, and devotionals.
