Why Call It "Prevailing Winds"?

Well, because I once had a blog, with one whole entry, called “What Keely Thinks.” Not even I cared enough to read it . . .

And so this summer, when I felt called to do this, the name came to me as both a nod to the pneuma — the breath or wind — of the Holy Spirit and its triumph over falsehood and malice, as well as another reference to people in the last times having “their ears tickled by every wind of doctrine.” It seemed relevant to some of the erroneous teaching spinning through this town.

The former reference is supported by the verse under the header; the latter is less easily discerned. However, linking “wind” to intestinal distress was not a consideration, although yes, sadly, I was warned that it would lead to jokes along that line.

Sigh.
