LETTERS: by Rev Dr D ClarnetteNews Weekly

Dr Hemingway's letter "Forgetting the golden rule" (News Weekly,
November 15) raises a valid point about contraception.
No doubt, as a medical doctor, he has been able to gauge the extent to which contraception is practised. Sadly, few ministers and churches ever tackle this subject.
I have no hesitation in urging Christian couples to observe the creation mandate in Genesis where the Creator of life urged man to "be fruitful and multiply; to fill the earth and subdue it".
My counsel to couples is to aim to have more rather than fewer children and to trust God for their support.Rev Dr D Clarnette
