If this question is addressed to me, and if I understand it correctly, the will of God is revealed to us in the Holy Scriptures - primarily the New Testament; explained by the Holy Church and the Holy fathers; and manifested in the circumstances of our lives.

Metropolitan Paul of ALeppo (Yazigi) wrote in one of his sermons "Sin is wrong understanding of God and wrong attitude of ours souls toward neighbour [i.e. other person]".
While "sin" and "wrong" is from the same root خ-ط-ء and sin is خطيئة (ẖaṭiʾa) and error is خطأ (ẖaṭʾ)and wrong is خاطئ (ẖāṭiʾ).
Pray for persecuted Christians, especially in Serbian Kosovo and Raška, Egypt and Syria

Any news on his whereabouts and those of his Syriac Orthodox brother?

Council of Nicea:
Εθη ἀρχαῖα κρατείτω. 
Mores antiqui obtineant.
The ancient ways shall prevail.

The sentiment of Nicea in Greek and Latin, translated into English.
