The Christian Deist path is a sensible way to respect the mystery of God without getting lost in mysticism or doctrine. It's a simple religion (simple enough for Jesus's early followers) that dissents from modern orthodox Christianity on several key points.
The best introduction to Christian Deism is John Lindell's excellent website christiandeistfellowship.com: it explains the core concepts succinctly and elegantly. This is a personal path and we have no "churches" or established "priests". All Christian Deists are equal and must stand before God on their own.
I would like to see the movement grow in prominence, not by pursuing or brainwashing "followers" but by convincing people who are open to its ideas. Fundamentalist and hyper-political churches are growing, as is the "angry atheist" movement. Many of us who cannot accept either of these worldviews can feel lonely and spiritually homeless, even though self-proclaimed "nones" are on the rise. I believe that many of these "nones" are Christian Deists, and I think that many people might be happy and relieved to know that they are not alone in their beliefs.
