For Epiphany / Wise Men / Kings / Magi Stuff Yet Once Again

Is there anything origianl to say about the Wise Men, or at least a fresh way to say it? All age family service stuff and a normal sermon are required here a day or two after my Christmas holiday so all suggestions or pointers welcome. It would be nice not to be reduced to recycled PowerPoint. I reckon the good folks have heard me on G, F & M; King, Priest, Sacrifice and Jesus the New Solomon possibly more than once. Wise Men sought Jesus, they still do has been used before too.

I notice Ian Hislop's programme about the Wise Men is available on Radio 4 Extra again for the next month or so.

Peter Mead's, Pleased To Dwell: A Biblical Introduction to the Incarnation (Christian Focus, 2014) has a chapter on Matthew 2:1-12. - the links in the comments are worth a look too
