                                            The 2021-2022 National Youth Cabinet met virtually in the
                                            winter of 2021 to select the theme. The Cabinet discussed
                                            theme ideas relevant to senior high youth, ultimately select-
                                            ing “Foundational.” The theme scripture from
                                            Colossians 2: 5-7 reads, “For though I am absent in body, yet
                                            I am with you in spirit, and I rejoice to see your morale and
                                            the firmness of your faith in Christ. As you therefore have re-
                                            ceived Christ Jesus the Lord, continue to live your lives in
                                            him, rooted and built up in him and established in the faith,
                                            just as you were taught, abounding in thanksgiving.”

                                            “Throughout the Bible, God is revealed as a foundation for
                                            our lives in many ways. Some examples of this are the cor-
                                            nerstone, the way God can be seen as an anchor for our lives,
                                            and how we remain rooted in God in all circumstances,”
                                            wrote Erika Clary, 2022 NYC Coordinator.
