For every woman we have named, there are a hundred who speak; for every hundred who speak, there are a thousand who know;
for every thousand who know, there are ten thousand who do not yet know because their truth lies still deeper than all the ones who speak and can be named.
And every one of us is needed now.To do whatever we can do: to be named, to speak, to know, to not know.
And everyone, the one who can be named, who can speak, who knows, and who does not yet know, is within each of us.
These powerfully moving words, written in The Feminine Face of God by Sherry Ruth Anderson and Patricia Hopkins, have been a tremendous inspiration to the vision that has borne Touchstones of the Sacred. Today these words are as relevant if not more so, because the need to re-awaken the Sacred Feminine in our culture is increasingly urgent.
In an exclusive video interview on our site entitled Ten Thousand Women, Sherry tells the story of how these words came to her and have remained inscribed in her mind for nearly 20 years.
