nothing wrong with this really.
HE was making a point.
I MUST CLEAN YOU.... (due to your sins)
we cannot clean sins from people. (nor can a church)
GOD alone can.
the symbolism is fine. (if a church wants to add this in)
it also shows humility.
when JESUS did it?
HE was KING (who served the people).
THE KING is SERVANT (to ALL).
- in LOVESource(s): we walk in this world. even well meaning believers become dirty (in sin). JESUS must cleans us... (that was HIS point in the teaching) wash away sins.....

Footwashing was a practical necessity of that society.
It is not in my society and in most modern societies.
So: it should be up to the individual.

In Matthew 5:17-20 Jesus teaches us that he was Not here to start a new religion; but to fix the Jewish religion. For us to add the New Testament to the Odd Testament. And requires us to also keep obeying ALL of the 613 Commandments that GOD gave to Moses.

They had been arguing over who was the greatest. He was teaching them a lesson on being humble.
If you have members of the congregation who think they are superior to others then maybe you could wash there feet to teach them a lesson? But it was not something he wanted us to do. It was a custom in those days, but it is not today. So No it should not be in the Passover service.

Some Christian churches do include foot washing in their Maundy Thursday Service.

Christianity is made by paul..not from Jesus (pbuh) teaching or even the Bible and God laws in it...so you cannot blame Christians for not following Jesus teaching as they already dont..they chose Christianity which is made and founded by paul and his teaching and those who created it to control others and their minds and their money..!!

jn 13 1-15
Now before the feast of the passover, when Jesus knew that his hour was come that he should depart out of this world unto the Father, having loved his own which were in the world, he loved them unto the end. And supper being ended, the devil having now put into the heart of Judas Iscariot, Simon's son, to betray him; Jesus knowing that the Father had given all things into his hands, and that he was come from God, and went to God; He riseth from supper, and laid aside his garments; and took a towel, and girded himself. After that he poureth water into a bason, and began to wash the disciples' feet, and to wipe them with the towel wherewith he was girded.
Many denominations (including Anglicans, Lutherans, Methodists, Presbyterians, Mennonites, and Catholics) therefore observe the liturgical washing of the feet on Maundy Thursday of Holy Week. Moreover, for some denominations, foot-washing was an example, a pattern. Many groups throughout Church history and many modern denominations have practiced foot washing as a church ordinance including Adventists, Anabaptists, Baptists, Free Will Baptists, and PentecostalsSource(s): https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Foot_washing
