           (This could be the beginning of the play.  The sounds of drinking in a bar are heardas the lights go down.  Then an engine starts, and there is wild driving.  The Pastor is seen in a spotlight looking at the audience as his flock)

PASTOR -  And so it begins....

           (The engine gets louder)

PASTOR -  We think we are safe in a small place like ours.  That the evil we read about in the newspaper and see on our television, well, that's for big cities.  

           (There is a thud, and a crash) 

PASTOR -  But fear not my children, for the devil is always near.  When we doubt his presence, we need only to look around......

           (Loud crying is heard)

PASTOR -  For when we speak of the devil......we hear the flapping of his wings.....

             (There is a gunshot and silence.  Blackout.  End of opening scene)
