The thought that spirituality without tithing reduces such pursuits to mere 'hobby' is quite sobering. This will be quite a challenge to most of us Anglicans.

"For most, the word “offering” immediately invokes the image of “money.”
This is not incorrect, even if it is limited. Money can certainly be an
“offering,” but our thoughts on the subject probably miss the
point. Money indeed has a sacramental character (as does all of
creation). In a modern culture, money is something of a sacrament of
all of our activity. As Christ Himself noted, it remains the primary
means by which we may know the heart (Matt 6:21). Interest in spiritual
things by those who do not practice “tithing” (returning to God a tenth
of what we receive) can easily become an exercise in vanity. The failure
to give alms generously (as in the tithe) can reduce spiritual activity
to the level of a hobby. In this matter, the Orthodox differ in no wise
from the non-Orthodox. Our culture is deeply enslaved by Mammon.
Moderns are deeply suspicious of all things having to do with money. We
see greed everywhere around us (except within ourselves)."
