It is always easier to diagnose these kinds of things if you include the
exact code you used, and the exact error you got. Otherwise, it could
be anything from a typographical error to a usage problem.

Template.respond() returns a normal string, and you should be able to
pass that directly to Paragraph to produce a flowable.
