Holy Fire and Cinnamon...what a combination!

This week I shared about   last week's visit to  Specialteas  Tea room in Northboro, MA.
and  one of my favorite   sweets  enjoyed there  was a Cinnamon Chip Scone... I had no idea!

  where have I been....   obviously not paying attention  when  passing through the baking aisle....  well,  it isn't exactly the aisle I  regularly traverse,  but   cinnamon chips.....  wow....
so I looked up   the recipe for these delectibles...I highly recommend you  visit    that link... I  don't wish to   copy her  page,   but   I definitely have it bookmarked, those scones are heavenly and I will be making them ....  lots of them!
The Taste of Home  recipe  is very very similar to my  cranberry walnut  scone recipe so I know   they would be light as a feather and  completely yummy, as well....  Just the perfect  scone for my upcoming Book Tea...  I  am   so very  excited about my Book tea    upcoming in 6 weeks....  My prayer Sista's and I are all reading Holy Fire, by RT Kendall....  and  I am planning a tea   get together to  chat about the  life  changing book  over   tea and yummies...I am very    expectant about this book...
   My  Christian walk   has led me  down various  theological  avenues,,,,  evangelical  Armenian, reformed Calvinistic, reformed  charismatic to  Baptist....   Many people might call me a bapticostal,   but whatever  you want to call it  I know the works of the Holy Spirit are real for today  and  churches that  do not  teach the full gospel  are missing  a huge element of God's Word so  completely relevant for  today and the trials   that are  swiftly coming in our nation and the world.... If you are feeling a tug in your spirit for more, I  urge you to check out this book....

Amazon's  review:

The Holy Spirit...
Greater than your theology, bigger than denominations, beyond all we can imagine, God's gift to the church and to you

Debate about the Holy Spirit has been around for a long time. In Holy Fire, best-selling author and respected theologian R. T. Kendall sets the record straight about the Holy Spirit’s role in our lives and in the life of the church.

If you want to increase your knowledge of this most misunderstood member of the Trinity, or if you long to experience His presence in your life in a deeper way than ever before, this book is for you.

Are you charismatic? He is bigger than your signs-and-wonders events. Are you Reformed? He will not be limited by your theology. As Jesus said of the Holy Spirit, “He blows where He will.”
Editorial Reviews

“Epic work on the Holy Spirit” —John Arnott, Catch the Fire Ministries, Toronto

“A challenge both to Reformed-cessationists and card-carrying charismatics.” —Colin Dye, senior minister, Kensington Temple, London, England

“Combines the Word and Spirit to set the record straight.” —Marcus Yoars, editor, Charisma magazine

“Best I’ve read on the Holy Spirit” —William Dwight McKissic, senior pastor, Cornerstone Baptist Church, Arlington, Texas

“Pastorally sensitive. Theologically exact” —Rob Norris, senior pastor, Fourth Presbyterian Church, Bethesda, Maryland

So, regarding my  Book tea....  I have my scones planned,  the topic...and you just might be interested to follow  along as the rest of the plans unfold....  I'm psyched   with   giddiness over this   marvelous  upcoming event!
