2012 Mutual Theme: Arise and Shine Forth D&C 115:5

Information on the 2012 mutual theme has been announced — “Arise and Shine Forth”!

A notice dated August 1, 2011, announced the 2012 Mutual theme: “Arise and shine forth, that thy light may be a standard for the nations” (Doctrine and Covenants 115:5).

Leaders are encouraged to use the theme as a focus of “special cultural events and other dance, music, and drama activities.” Leaders may also introduce the theme with a new DVD, Strength of Youth Media 2012: Arise and Shine Forth, which will be sent to units in November 2011. Additional resource material in support of the theme will be available in the New Era and Liahona magazines and on LDS.org at the beginning of 2012.

Arise and Shine Forth was the mutual theme in 2006, so I’ve already got a big collection of helps for the new theme.
