The four little letters were sad and unhappy because of their name. You see they knew that God didn't put fear in us. I will begin with the first three letters, they are females, the last letter is a male. Each letter will be talking to themselves.

Ms. F. - Who thinks she is all that. She's first, tall, and can be capitalized. But, still very sad. She decided to change her name, I'll call myself Ms. Friendly, she remembers that the 5th Pastor said in 2015, that if you show yourself friendly, you will have friends. Good, but not at this time. I know, I'll call myself
Ms. FAITH. She looked back at Ms. E., and said (See ya).

Ms. E. - Jumped up, don't leave me, I can be Ms. Excellence. Oh, How Excellence is His name. She thought, it’s a great name, but, I need more in this pandemic time. I'll pray for everybody all over the world. That way I can stay with Ms. Faith. I know, I'll call myself
Ms. EFFORT. She looked back at Ms. A., and said (See ya).

Ms. A. - The smallest and saddest of them all. You see, she was once a leader, the first lady of our alphabet, she could even be capitalized. Sadly for her, she was put in third letter place. I'll fix them she said, I'll call myself Ms. Attitude. Wait, please wait, I don't understand. Now I'm all alone with fear. She notices how happy Ms. F. and Ms. E. seem to be. Well, she said, I'll pray with effort, renew my strength, that way I can stay with Ms. Faith. I Know, I’ll call myself
Ms. ATTENTION. She looked back at Mr. R. (well you know what she said, (See ya).

Mr. R. -The only male in the group that's bound to us. Well, and so it goes. Mr. R. was leaning back, just chilling. I can be Mr. Relax he said, I know, I know, I have a flock and I would never, never leave them. He stood up, call me Mr. Running, you see I'm running for Jesus, running for the Lord. He looked back, called out to Ms, Attention, Ms. Effort are we working together, yes, Mr. Running, we are all with Ms. Faith.  
Mr. Running was pleased, gave a big smile, looked back and call out to Ms. Faith, saying, remember, He said (And the last shall be first). Mr. Running was so happy, he just kept on running. He kept running until he came to a street name Bennington, 4812 a red brick building saying Friendship Missionary Baptist Church. Mr. Running walked up to the door, it was open, he was not surprise, you see (The doors of the church are always open).
Mr. Running walked in, looked back and waved his hand and said COME ON, COME ON, COME ON, he went to the Altar, turned around and said remember he said (And this to shall pass). He turned around and looked at his flock (he was happy), he stared at them and said, I knew when we all get together what a day of rejoicing it would be. I love you all, but , don't forget, keep your chins up, and we are friends for life.

Just in case you didn't get it, Mr. Running is Rev F. D Sampson Jr. 6th Pastor. We are still running with him in  FAITH.
