Spinning Plates or Playing Chicken?

I was talking to a friend the other day when I said ‘I reckon a good metaphor for what I was doing in the established church is that of spinning plates – getting things going and then continually going back to keep the plates spinning.’

The metaphor that came to mind for the emerging missional scene was that of playing chicken – having the nerve to hold your line when you are tempted to bale.

A friend asked ‘so what is that object coming from the other way?’

What would you say?
