    Why was Jesus thin?
    'Why was Jesus thin?' asked John Bell in a workshop on Iona last week. David, Joyce and family were up there and tonight in our Iona Community Family Group shared the inspiration they enjoyed there. People misguidedly assume Iona's a nice quiet place to go and retreat from life. Couldn't be more different. It's a place where hard issues are dealt with face-on, where prejudices shatter as lights come on and people shudder into community. Where the sideways view counts. So why was Jesus thin? Just one among hundreds of provocative questions they enjoyed grappling with last week. Answers in the comments box please.
