Welcome to the ULC Minister's Network

Rev Robert Fuller


  •               Too often in today's society we have a tenancy to concentrate on all the bad, the economy, corrupt bankers, charity leaders making as much as a pro ball player, crime, no health care, a political system as broken and corrupt as our justice system. These are serious problems and should be addressed.

                               I do however think that it is just as important to realize that there are thousands of people out there giving all that they have to make this planet a better place to live.

                              Jorge Munoz: School bus driver is helping hungry New Yorkers make it through tough times. Since 2004, he has handed out more than 70,000 meals from his mobile soup kitchen in Queens -- for free.

                              Jordon Thomas: 20, of Chattanooga, Tennessee, lost both of his legs in a boating accident in 2005. Since then, his Jordan Thomas Foundation has raised more than $400,000 to provide prosthetics for children in need.
                              Andrea Ivory:  Breast cancer survivor is bringing early detection to the doorsteps of uninsured women. With mobile mammography vans, her group has provided more than 500 free screenings in Miami, Florida.
                             Derrick Tabb: started The Roots of Music to give young people an alternative to New Orleans' streets. His music education program provides free tutoring, instruments and music instruction to more than 100 students.
                             We are surrounded by thousands of nameless unsung hero's and all we need to do is take the time to look. They are the dads spending time with their children, when they could be out with their buddies, the moms sacrificing for their children, the just plain every day people out there raising money for no other reason than to help those in need, volunteers in homeless centers, soup kitchens, crisis centers, even sites like this one, asking nothing but the opportunity to make things a little better.

                           It is important to keep an eye on the ravening wolves of the world but, I believe its just as important to look around at all the wonderful things going on in our own back yard, even with all that is wrong, we are truly blessed.
