Geneva (Ginny) Brown Daniel is pastor of Plymouth United Church (United Church of Christ) in Spring, Texas—a position she has held since 2003! A political progressive, she believes that the church should be the place that shares God’s love with everyone — no matter how old you are, how much money you have in the bank, your sexual orientation, or the color of your skin.
Ginny is originally from Auburn, Alabama. She graduated from Auburn University with a degree in Corporate Journalism in 1994. She received a Master of Divinity degree from the Baptist Theological Seminary at Richmond in 1998 and received her Doctor of Ministry degree from Union Presbyterian Seminary in 2010.
She received the Chevis and Helen Horne Preaching Award in 1997. She was the Associate Pastor of Christ’s Reformed Church, UCC in Hagerstown, MD from 1999-2003. Ginny has been the pastor at Plymouth since July 18, 2003. While at Plymouth, Ginny has served on the Board of Directors for Northwest Assistance Ministries, been the Chairperson for the Spring Interfaith Dialogue Council, spoken at the Foundation for Contemporary Theology, and served as registrar for the Houston Association of the UCC. When Ginny isn’t working at the church, she’s probably watching movies, practicing yoga, or watching her favorite football team, the Auburn Tigers!

I will, instead, shake my head and wonder if there will ever be a generation of young girls that doesn't know what it means to be objectified.

My trip to Cairo was merely a glimpse into a complex world. I stayed at a hotel where armed guards protected the guests. However, I keenly observed the grittiness of abject poverty, the openness to cultural modernity of women, the preservation of traditional cultural values. I saw none of the political unrest that has since killed hundreds of people.
