We've run into a rash of people who are confused by the many uses of "topic" in the software. Generally, the software uses this terminology:

  • Bible -- topic
  • Sermon -- theme
  • Culture -- concept
  • Theology -- topic

However, one workflow breaks this pattern. Please standardize the name.

Orthodox Bishop Hilarion Alfeyev: "To be a theologian means to have experience of a personal encounter with God through prayer and worship."

Hi, MJ. I agree that we overload the term "topic" in the software, and it's important be consistent in distinguishing between the various datasets. In this case, however, the naming is intentional. Consider the workflow template a kind of resource, in the broadest sense of the term. It utilizes the Preaching Themes dataset as the key; that becomes obvious as soon as you open it. But the title ought to be self-evident as to the workflow's purpose, without having to know the jargon of our software.
