Leave room for the Holy Spirit?

Since it went viral last week you may have seen the Christian side hug rap video. Here’s the rest of the story.

The Chicago Tribune:

The joke, it turns out, is on the people who thought the joke was on fundamentalist Christians.

In recent weeks, the “Christian side hug” has become something of an Internet buzz item, propelled to viral status largely by a Christian rap video apparently extolling the virtues of the “side hug,” a more chaste way for humans to greet.

“We think it’s hilarious because some people think (the video) is serious,” said Pann, reached at The Father’s House, a Vacaville, Calif., church that sponsors the Encounter Generation Conference, an annual Christian youth gathering at which the video was shot.

“It’s not a mockery of the faith,” Pann emphasized. “It’s a mockery of the act of the Christian side hug.”

In other words, if you’re going to hug, hug.

The question of the day: Do you practice the Christian side hug?
