Hand out clothes hangers (white plastic or wire hangers covered in paper) and black Sharpie markers. Say: Thomas had doubts. How about you? Do you have any doubts or hang-ups when it comes to Jesus or His resurrection?
Write these doubts, fears, questions—all your hang-ups—on the hanger. Talk to Jesus about them. He is not afraid of your doubts, questions or any of the issues or hang-ups you might have. When you are ready, give these hang-ups to Jesus. Let Him have your questions, doubts and fears. Lay them at the foot of the cross. Spend some time thanking Him for taking these things and holding them for you.
