Maybe you didn't know how to share your story or you didn't feel comfortable talking about God or maybe you didn't know why you should tell your story or if it even mattered.

The Gospel of the Resurrection is NOT about the assurance of life after death. Easter is about rising of Jesus amongst his followers.
