The devotion was given by Mary Lou Shearer who read a poem entitled “Springtime.” Betty Bonar surprised the group with a lovely rendition of “Danny Boy” and another song on the violin.

It is good to share. To work together in harmony. To help each other and enrich each other's lives in countless ways. And it doesn't hurt to expect a few miracles along the way. Can I get an amen?

What it looks to be is a tidy store selling high-quality clothing and accessories for crazy cheap. But there is more to the story. “I call it a 'miracle room' because of the things we see happen in here,” says Joyce Zinner, who, along with Donna Browne, manages the Amen Corner.
