Contour Plotting on a sphere

I want to plot contours of a function f(theta,phi), where theta and phi
are standard spherical polar coordinates. These contours will be curves
on the surface of a sphere. Can Mathematica do such a plot? If yes,
how? As far as i know, Mathematica can do only contours of f(x,y) where
x,y are cartesian coordinates. Thanks for any help.
