Joshua Hill Foster, formerly pastor of Birmingham’s Ruhama Baptist Church, served a long pastorate from 1896 to 1909. Like his predecessors, he was a well- educated man from a prominent family, one that had furnished a president to the University of Alabama. Foster would himself serve as a college president after his tenure in Anniston. He brought a sensitive social consciousness to the industrial town. During a lengthy strike in Birmingham, he brooded about strikers who were literally starving.
But Parker’s leaders denied their support and the project never materialized. He actually planted and harvested crops himself and conducted a camp there for the black children, but the cooperative features were never implemented. Later attempts in Madison, Wisconsin, failed also, and he gave up that dream as he did the Oxford Group. 15 Bell’s deepening involvement in the rural cooperative movement branched into many subsidiary relationships. Several liberal ministerial friends gave his name to Lucy Randolph Mason, a native Virginian who came to Atlanta in 1937 to help improve the image of the Congress of Industrial Organizations (CIO) in the South.
To Bell, the Oxford Group was a saving remnant that took the ethical and spiritual demands of the Bible seriously and could radiate this new discipleship throughout the church. To many members, it was Charlie’s clique, a self-righteous, exclusive group that laid claim to a special holiness. In the early days of his ministry, Bell’s obvious sincerity provoked disbelief and comical dilemmas. He insisted on paying for football games he had attended without tickets while a student at Howard College.
