The Importance of Our Theme

No matter what Theme is chosen for a trek, the objective is the same: to bring us to Christ. As we considered this and also considered the principles of faith, obedience, sacrifice and charity that should be taught on Trek we prayed and pondered what to choose as our Theme.

One Sunday during the sacrament, while pondering on these things, I was thumbing through the hymn book. My eyes fell on the hymn, “How Firm a Foundation.” As I thought about the pioneers struggling across the rocky plains, the spirit testified to me and I knew it was because of the foundation of Christ that they were able to do what they did. Later, we looked up the scripture in Helaman 5:12. After reading that and thinking of the pioneers, we knew this would be our Theme. Take some time to read through all verses of this great hymn, thinking about the pioneers. Read Helaman 5:12 with these same thoughts.

We bare testimony to you that building our foundation on Christ that will give us the strength to face all things. If we like the pioneers can build our lives on the foundation of Christ, we will be able to face anything with faith, obedience and sacrifice. We will know that it is a “sure foundation, a foundation whereon if men build they cannot fall.”
